Why Choose KraftMaid

If you are currently choosing cabinets for a kitchen or bathroom remodel, you may be wondering which manufacturer to go with. As the only KraftMaid Vantage® Design Studio on the Gulf Coast, we highly recommend KraftMaid cabinetry for your remodel. Let’s take a look at how KraftMaid stands apart from other cabinet manufacturers.  


KraftMaid cabinets are assembled by hand. There are no pre-assembled or pre-finished cabinets. Artisans train for months to create finishes that meet KraftMaid’s standards. Many of KraftMaid’s finishers customize their glazing and highlight brushes by trimming the bristles to play up the application techniques they have developed over the years.  

Throughout the assembly process, your order is carefully reviewed by certified inspectors to ensure quality. Every cabinet in your order is built at the same time to ensure consistency and completeness. Once a cabinet is assembled, it’s inspected again, boxed for shipping, and immediately loaded for delivery (reducing the number of times your cabinets are handled and minimizing your wait).  

Quality comes standard 

KraftMaid builds their cabinetry to stand up to whatever life throws at it. To ensure quality, your KraftMaid cabinets include the following: 

  • DuraKraft Plus finishing system 
  • Whisper Touch hinges & drawer glides 
  • Solid-wood dovetail drawers 
  • Deep drawer boxes with full-extension drawers 
  • 90-LB drawer slides 
  • ¾" face frames on cabinets 
  • I-beam sturdy construction 
  • ¾" adjustable shelves 
  • ½" panels  

Learn more about the value each of these elements brings to your kitchen or bathroom cabinets over a lifetime of use.
